Littlefoot and his pals set off in search of a "stone of cold fire" that fell from the night sky. Since he's the only one who has seen it though, nobody really believes him. Petrie's uncle Pterano offers support only because he thinks the stone has secret powers and wants it for himself but conceals this from the rest. The young dinos must figure out the truth, before Pterano gets the power.Written by
This is the second film not to have a narrator. Instead, Petrie narrates the opening scene. See more »
The fiery comet which Littlefoot sees at night is now yellow instead of blue (although it remains blue during the song Beyond the Mysterious Beyond), the fiery pit which blows Littlefoot and his friends out of Threehorn Peak and the small boulder they stand on are entirely reanimated, the pillar of light at the very end is more shiny, and the late-1990's Universal Television logo is added right before the Universal Cartoon Studios logo (which is mysteriously sourced from The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, judging from the last second of the end credits music being heard between both logos).

Don't tell me, you must be old threehorn's daughter.
How'd you know?
Let's just say there's a *strong* family resemblance.
Oh - thank you.

On current digital printings and STARZ and HBO airings/streaming platforms, there have been many alterations to the film:
The 1997 Universal Pictures logo is now zoomed in.
Both title cards are now shown right before the comets zoom into the light during the opening scene
The fiery comet which Littlefoot sees at night is now yellow instead of blue (although it remains blue during the song "Beyond the Mysterious Beyond").
The fiery pit which blows Littlefoot and his friends out of Threehorn Peak and the small boulder they stand on are entirely reanimated
The pillar of light at the very end is more shiny.
The late-1990's Universal Television logo is added right before the Universal Cartoon Studios logo (which is mysteriously sourced from The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island, judging from the last second of the end credits music being heard between both logos).
Littlefoot observes a "stone of cold fire" fall into the Mysterious Beyond but everyone thinks he imagines it, apart from Petrie's uncle, Pterano.
This film has a serious message about how we should take responsibility for our actions. It also explains that goodness can be found even in a person who seems bad.
Pterano and his henchmen are entertaining new villains, especially Pterano. He basks in his assumed greatness and demonstrates a range of emotions. He is excellently voiced by Michael York. Two other new characters are a pair of "rainbow faces" who encourage Littlefoot in his quest for knowledge. They are mysterious right up to the surprise ending which I won't give away.
The youngsters are as cute as ever, especially Ducky and Petrie, who are given more to do than normal. The best song is sung by Pterano. The animation isn't top notch but that is only to be expected from a straight to video release. It can be enjoyed by adults. (I'm 23)
